Summary

This book presents a uniquely practical approach to the topic of Assessment in Special Education. The authors organize the material into a "real-world story," by having each part and chapter of the book reflect the linear chronology-beginning, middle, and end-of the assessment process itself. While many other books in this area present 15 or so disconnected chapters, this book is organized chronologically to present the overall process in "straight line," -a practical and useful pedagogy in itself for the novice teacher. The book provides the practical tools necessary for a new teacher to understand the process of assessment in schools and then learn how to put it all together. It provides special educators comprehensive coverage of the latest tests and evaluation procedures for all areas of exceptionality-for every age group-for students with mild, moderate and severe disabilities. For special educators.
